The Top of the World Highway connects Dawson City, Yukon to Tok, Alaska. This 301 km (187 mi) highway winds along the top of the mountain range for a truly breathtaking drive. The Little Gold/Poker Creek border crossing from the Yukon to Alaska is the most northern international border crossing in all of North America.
The Denali Highway is certainly one of the most spectacular drives in the world. Much of the route lies above timberline, so the vistas go on forever. The mountains and glaciers of the Alaska Range form a majestic backdrop, with miles of rolling tundra punctuated by shallow lakes in between.
